Happy Monday, Lounger! Sauteed tomatoes and chicken soup are the ingredients of the Filipino meal known as Kinamatisang Manok. The Tagalog word for tomato is kamatis, whereas the term for chicken is manok. Since this dish is basically a soup, it is excellent for winter!

Traditionally, in the Philippines, if you are a lactating mother, it is highly recommended to eat soupy food because it will help in producing more and healthier milk for the baby! So, yes, I recommend this to lactating mothers out there. It’s absolute comfort food!

Quick Tips:

  • You can also use Milk Fish (Bangus) in this recipe instead of chicken meat.
  • Instead of a cube, you can use chicken stock. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any chicken stock on hand, so I sorted chicken cubes that I could buy in the grocery store.
  • You may adjust the water accordingly for the soup.

I love the gingery, spicy kick of the ground pepper and tomatoes’ sweet-sour taste. Kinamatisang Manok is fantastic during cold winter or rainy days! Try this, and let me know your experience. I’d love to hear from you!
